Grilled Apple Chicken Sausage Salad

Confession: Okay this is more a idea than a real "recipe" but it tasted good. I love sharing the stuff that really tastes good. Sometimes I get frustrated that I don't have a better record of blogging every other night. But the problem is not everything I try is worthy of sharing. This simple dish is. Heck, after unpacking boxes and sorting papers all morning, and losing my table in the process... this tasted amazing, light, and refreshing. The fresh apple I chopped mirrored the apple chunks in the sausage perfectly.

Yay! It is summer time, prime time for yummy cold salads with fresh straight out of the garden/store/farmers market veggies and fruits. Pair warm weather fruits and veggies like these with any sort of protein with a yummy salad for lunch or dinner. No cafe or restaurant needed just a grill/bbq and some yummy ingredients and yes there is real meat in this salad... hardy chunks of flavorful smoky grilled chicken sausage.

So to make this summer time bliss,  you need the following ingredients (or sub your own fav veggies) per person per salad

Prep Time: 5-7 minutes
Cooking Time: Depending on your sausage 5 -15 minutes

1- 1&1/2 cup of chopped romaine lettuce
1 apple chicken sausage, grilled*
1 apple washed and coarsely chopped (left peel on for texture and more nutrients)
1/2 Tbs olive oil drizzled over the top
1/2 of an avocado, sliced & diced
1/4-1/2 of a cucumber chopped (to taste)
1/2 chopped roma tomato
Sprinkle of salt and pepper

*Note: my sausage was already cooked - so I grilled it approx 5 minutes ea side on medium low to add the smoky flavor and heat it through for that hot cold contrast I love.

Cook, Toss, & Eat. 
Happy Simple Real Food
Enjoy your family & friends this memorial day weekend!
